I wonder how open-border libertarians resolve traveling stupid voters problem? I used to be an open border libertarian and kind of still partially do. But there is a catch. Imagine if voters in Venezuela are stupid. They are so stupid they pick a system that
Under open border libertarianism, those people can come to Brazil, US, Canada, once their own country mess up, and then they will vote for socialism again and then they will bankrupt those countries still, and move and move and move spreading stupidity. In fact, relatively stupid people will tend to vote for socialism because they are far more likely to benefit from a redistribution of wealth.
Under the current system, a richer country can just vet immigrants. If Venezuelan vote stupidly, they will be poor. We will all watch and know not to vote like them. It’s like going to your own house. You don’t have a right to keep people out but you have a right to keep outsider out till you think otherwise. It would have made sense if countries have “owners” and we consider countries to “own” their territories.
However, the current system, while not perfect is fine
Some libertarians would argue that the solution is to honor
Immigrants can come but cannot vote for welfare, for example.
In politic, there isn’t really any moral. In
In normal life, if someone seize your land, you call cops. In politic, if a country seizes another country’s land then we just blame the victim for being weak.
We have an international community that sort of help arbitrage this sort of thing but not by much. There are many ways to play around. A country can say they’re threatened or that the people on those land actually want to join and so on and so on
Interests are maintained through power. People that live near you will always have power over you and hence letting them channel their wish through voting may be better
